Given the potential danger, and relative low expense, would you just consider trashing this and buying a new one? I don't intend to sound short or sarcastic....it's just with the burning smell I would prefer you either return it for refund, call the manufacturer or trash it for a different iron.
Looking at epinions.com there is a comperable iron for around $40-$50 with 24 reviews and 3.5 stars out of 5.

It leaks water when I iron sometimes staining my clothes with black streaks or water stains.


Hello :

1:Clean your steam iron according to the manufacturer's instructions. Your iron is more likely to leak when it has not been cleaned properly. Plus, the water that leaks from a steam iron that hasn't been cleaned will likely be dirty and stain your fabric. Every steam iron brand is different, so be sure to check the manual that came with your iron or browse the manufacturer's website for instructions on keeping your steam iron in good working order.

2:Use your steam iron on a rigid surface like an ironing board. In a rush, you might be tempted to quickly iron a blouse or pants on the nearest available surface like a bed, carpet or even on a table with a towel draped over it. However, these surfaces may not provide the proper amount of level padding for successful steam ironing, and leaks are more likely to occur. Take the time to set up your ironing board for smooth steam ironing to reduce water leaks on a bumpy surface.

3:Allow your steam iron to heat fully in the upright position before ironing. Because your steam iron is designed to convert water into steam that will easily smooth out wrinkles on bulky fabrics, you can avoid leaks by ensuring your iron has time to get the water to the correct temperature. If you lay your steam iron in the horizontal position too quickly, water that is not hot enough to convert to steam will leak. Give the iron a chance to heat up, and then test your steam function on your ironing board cover or spare fabric swatch before tacking your favorite blouse.

4:Turn off the steam function on your iron when ironing at lower temperatures. Since your iron's steam function is designed to convert the water in your iron to steam at the right temperature, lower iron temperatures can cause water to leak if your steam setting is still activated. For ironing more delicate fabrics, turn off the steam to avoid water leaks.

Burned out and Leaks


Without the reciept and the fact that it now dosent work, I think you dump it and never buy another of thier products. You could write to them first, but you are really on your own.
Good luck

Shark iron


I bought this Shark iron last July and I even saved the receipt!!But I threw the box away. The water is leaking out of the bottom. I bought the expensive Rowenta before that, and that one leaked all over my ironing. And I cleaned these irons faithfully every month. I need a toll free number for Shark
